SMH at this contract!

Recommended Posts

NFL really needs a amnesty clause like the NBA has. Basically lets you buy a guy out of his contract with no future cap implications

 

 

You mean a Hurney clause.

Mind boggling how slow Jerry Richardson was to react to the Hurney train wreck.

Hurney, really stuck it to us. Has there been an active player in the league, other than Stewart, that has never participated in OTA's and PreSeason games throughout their NFL career.

My eyes started bleeding halfway through the OP.  

 

It seems like we'll have to deal with the same RB group for at least another year.  Maybe draft one late to compete with Barner for that 3rd spot.

I still wish we knew what Gettlemen's restructure of Stewarts deal last year actually did....

I don't see anyone here "throwing rotten tomatoes at the guy". Pretty much everyone would like nothing more than for him to come back healthy, and put up a lot of yards, but right now it definitely isn't looking good.

People have a right to be concerned about the situation.

sure is easy to kick someone while their down, and in the off season.

Sure gonna be a long off season with you guys being negative about every lil' thing.

LOL.  The first page of this thread is exhibit A.  More people have explicitly expressed or insinuated that they would prefer him gone than desire---or believe---that Stew will be a healthy, productive member of the team again. Furthermore, everyone is concerned, it's just that some choose to be more positive and hopeful about a situation that has been tough for J-Stew and the team the last couple of seasons.   

 

J-Stew is a tough, hard working guy. The fact that his contract is perceived as a "bad contract" with negative implications has been discussed ad nauseum. Seriously.  We can keep uselessly bemoaning that fact, or we can wish that a lemon can turn to lemonade.  I am hopeful that J-Stew's situation is closer to Reggie Bush's than Tim Biakabutka's.

Are you kidding me? Where am I kicking anyone?

I'm sorry if discussion offends your delicate sensibilities, next time just don't open the thread.

The major problem is we gave both of them this type of contract.

 

We let the Seattle Playoff loss scare us into paying for 2 high dollar RB.

 

Wait, wut, we let a game in 2006 impact decision making in 2012?  Don't think so.  

What did happen was a) the mantra was always to pay to keep your first rounders, and b) Hurney was hell-bent to show they weren't cheap and was willing to do whatever it took to maintain the core of a 2-14 team.

Since that game the team has made a effort to have a 2 RB system.
